1930 - 2016 Obituary Condolences
Born Doris Jane Andrews on August 23, 1930, in Apache, OK, Doris went home to be with the Lord on August 31, 2016. She was married to Albert Dorsey of Anadarko, OK, on June 19, 1948, and had three daughters, Jane, Elaine, and Lou. She moved to Bakersfield, CA, in 1960.
Doris was predeceased by her daughter, Jane Brackeen, in 1972 and by her husband, Albert, in 1998. Survivors include her daughters, Elaine (Frank) Poyner, Lou (Marty) Stoker; son-in-law, Don Brackeen; granddaughters, Rhonda (Mike) Sterling and Sonja (Mark) Leding; and grandson, Eric (Livia) Brackeen; great-grandsons, Garrett and Jordan Leding, Brenden, Aiden, and Chance Sterling, Peyton, Nolan, and Evan Brackeen; three sisters, Jean Mullican, Carolyn (Jim) Phariss, and Ruth Andrews; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
Her hobbies were gardening, reading, making cookies and homemade jelly. She worked as a church secretary for 24 years and was a children's Sunday School teacher for many years. Her greatest joy was knowing Jesus Christ as her Savior, and her family. Her prayer would be for all to know that same joy and peace. "Absent from the body, present with the Lord."
